Who am I?

I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportswoman of the Week Ending 7/16/2017

For the second time in three weeks, we have a first time major winner on the LPGA tour.  This time, Sung Hyun Park of South Korea stormed the American shores to win her first LPGA tournament and Major.  It was her 5th Top 4 finish in 14 tournaments, so the 23 year-old top player on the Korean LPGA is definitely a world contender.  Consistency was her model, as she held off a surprising 17-year old amateur Hye-Jin Choi also from South Korea and Feng Shanshan of China with but just one bogey on the final round.  In a surprise Asian showing, South Koreans controlled 8 of the top 10 positions at Trump National Golf Course, with the top finishing American being Marina Alex at T11.  Is this a harbinger of things to come or a weekend anomaly?  Time will tell, but Sung Hyun Park is our Sportswoman of the Week!
